Shark Attack Leaves Man's Leg Badly Bitten While Spearfishing In Northern California

They were finishing up a day of fishing at Stillwater Cove before being alerted to a victim of a shark bite.

Cal Fire says a spear fisherman was diving at the Stillwater Cove area of the resort in Monterey County when he was attacked by a shark.

A man was attacked by a shark while spearfishing in Northern California. The news anchor claims the shark severed the man's leg. Fox News reports the man's "leg was intact, but the bite was serious".

Grigor was rescued by two off-duty deputies that had been fishing out on the water.

One of the deputies on the scene trained in emergency field medicine applied a tourniquet to the man's leg, stopping the blood loss, sheriff's officials said.

The man was transported to a nearby hospital, Sheriff's officials said.

Officials told the AP there haven't been any recent shark sightings at the Monterey County beach.

In March, a great white shark knocked a kayaker off his boat as he was paddling through Monterey Bay.

An air unit conducted a search of the area and spotted a "large aquatic animal", which may have been the shark, off Pescadero Point.
